Joe Burrow finally met Drew Brees and it was just as special as you'd have imagined it to be.

It may be hard to believe, but even though they are only separated by a one-hour stretch of I-10, the Saints #9 and the LSU #9 have never crossed paths. As LSU prepares for the National Championship Monday night in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome Joe Burrow finally had a chance to meet Drew Brees.

What's even more special is Joe revealed that Drew Brees was his idol growing up (and also the reason he was a Saints fan) which is sure to fuel more insane theories from the Who Dat Nation on how their team should figure out a way to score Burrow in the upcoming draft (even though that scenario is pretty much impossible).

Drew even hung around and hyped up the Tigers at their final practice before heading into the big championship game against Clemson.

With many LSU fans being Saints fans and vice versa, this is literally a meeting of epic proportions. As Joe is set to embark on his NFL career, Drew's is a lot closer to the end than the beginning. You could only hope these two #9s will keep in touch moving forward.
